Damnit, I went right by Scotia Square today on my way to school.

I met a few NHLers a couple years ago, Brodeur, Smyth and someone else from Team Canada were at the Dome (local bar).

Damnit though. Damnit all.

This isn't the first time I've heard that Jokinen is a pri#k. During the trade deadline period, Jacques Demers stated that he has heard from a reliable source that Jokinen is just a miserable SOB and is a complete poison in the dressing room.

I'm sure Jacques Martin would agree with this assessment. Actually it wouldn't surprise me if Martin is Demers' source.

At the years end they had an event with kids in Florida and apparently he was an ***** to them as well.

It's funny because usually Finnish players are known for being low maintenance. Jokinen appears to be the exception to the rule.

The Montreal media might whip him into shape. Or just whip him.

They sat down at some Chinese Restaurant and when they were done I started talking to Saku, and surprisingly seemed like a funny guy.

I asked Saku for his autograph and he said he didn't have a pen or marker. I was like ****, me neither, so he turned and asked Oli and he just replied with "why the **** would I have a marker?" What kind of response is that? Saku almost rolled his eyes at him. I showed him my TML wallet and said oh well I was just going to get you to sign this anyways and he had a good laugh about it. He said not many TML fans ask him for autographs. I just said "ya but it's not every day I meet any NHL players" and he just said "Really? Surprising enough I meet them all the time" and he just laughed about it.

Despite me "hating" the Habs, I actually kind of like Saku. He seems like a funny guy and friendly. Oli just seems like an ass and cocky as hell.

Mikko was standing with Saku, too. He didn't say too much, though.


Some Habs fan told me I should share it over on the Habs board.
cool story

I'd really like to meet Saku, i've always heard nothing but great things about him. It's pretty sad how some people can want him ran out of town considering everything he has done for the city, team and our fans.

The media types would thrust a microphone in Jokinen's face and ask him to speak French and he'd beat them up.
